Cakes and sweets are a lovely treat, but most of us can do without a hypoglycaemic attack of the shakes caused by eating sugar on an empty stomach. These recipes are high in animal protein rather than empty calories from sugar and carbohydrates. Designed to keep you fuller for longer, they will maintain stable blood sugar levels. All are free from gluten and dairy, and suitable for a Paleo diet. As they are designed to be made ahead of time, they make ideal starters when you have company around.
